In The Know: Summer School options
Although it might not seem like it, summer is not that far away! Instead of playing on the computer or watching the television for the whole holiday, your child could join one of these exciting programmes and get a head start on their future.
Pre-University Taster – King’s College London (Ages 16-17)
This is a four-day non-residential programme, designed for students aged 16-17, that enables them to find out what it is like to study one of the world’s top universities. Your child would get to choose between four areas of study: Law, Science, Business Management and Cultural History, and would receive university-level tuition, relevant excursions and admissions advice.

Summer Schools – Debate Chamber (Ages 11-18)
Whatever your child is interested in, Debate Chamber has a course that will be ideal for them! They have a range of programmes, adapted to suit every age group, from law and computer science to dentistry and medicine.
